Holiday Homes in the TirolThe Tirol, the heart of the Alps and symbol of Austria, is the ideal destination in summer as well as winter. This region offers varied possibilities throughout the year. Fantastic mountain scenery awaits nature lovers. Why not go hiking as a couple, with friends or family in the Grossglockner national park in Western Tirol. Don’t forget to visit Innsbruck, the capital of the Tirol. Join those ice sport lovers on the Tyrolean glaciers. The Tirol is a dynamic region which has kept its authentic charm and traditions. The calender year is dotted with many local celebrations, such as the “desalpe” which takes place throughout the Tirol from mid-September to October.
The beautiful Tirol region of Austria is renowned for its majestic and enchanting mountain landscape, making it a stunning location for both Winter and Summer holidays. The mountains are truly remarkable with more than 500 peaks higher than 3000 m, more than 600 glaciers as well as lush green meadows and valleys dotted with alpine huts. Many visitors travel to the Tirol to get away from it all and enjoy the peace and quiet of the mountains, while others go looking for the thrills of alpine skiing and toboganning.
Chalet Holidays in the TirolAlmost 15000 hiking paths are available for visitors to the Tirol. Families love the easier hiking routes whilst sport lovers like throwing themselves into the more difficult tracks such as the Aigle. If you would rather explore the region by bike then hundreds of kilometers of cycle trails wind through some very impressive countryside. Family cycle trails allow stress-free exploration of the stunning mountain scenery with the children. If you prefer water activities, then try some sailing or kitesurfing on Achensee lake. Hiking and rock climbing are also popular activities in the warm summer months and, in the Winter, there are plenty of opportunities to enjoy the exciting skiing in resorts such as Kitzbuhel. The Tirol villages and towns are famous for their traditional customs, as well as offering some of the best museums and other cultural attractions.
